Never Heard Of It is a new series that explores Vancouver’s many informal hole-in-the-wall eateries.
Laksa King’s restorative bowl of laksa on a chilly, no-good Vancouver day is a serious no-brainer. Its superiority in the soup game gives new meaning to Omar Little’s famous line from The Wire, “When you come at the king, you best not miss.” It’s hard to resist licking the bowl clean with your tongue, so get some Roti Canai to do the job. And the King offers up so much more than just the Burmese signature spicy noodle soup. Their Laphet Thoke (tea leaf salad) and Green Mango Salad, for example, are both packed with colour, contrasting textures and nuanced flavour.
